Wouldn’t it be nice if we could help the people we know with more positive thoughts about test-taking in order to relieve some stress?
Once upon a time, I learned about eustress and I want to share it with you if you’ve never heard of the word. Eustress is the opposite of stress in which majority of the time, the word stress evokes a negative connotation. Conversely, at times stress is deemed a positive in the realm of being a motivational emotion, because stress can ignite the fight or flight syndrome that often helps to accomplish tasks just as eustress does when in competition with yourself to achieve a goal.
Also, I found an interesting article on Medical News Today’s website. The article is entitled Eustress vs. Distress.
